DCLG report on ‘Alcohol Fund’ project to tackle binge and underage drinking

: Findings from a £1 million project to support ten key areas to tackle alcohol-related problems have been released by the Department for Communities and Local Government (CLG). The ten main ‘alcohol fund’ areas were announced in 2012 as a two year project led by Baroness Newlove, the Government’s Champion for Active, Safer Communities and pledged in the Government Alcohol Strategy. The overall aims of the project were to ‘develop sustainable community-based approaches to tackle problem drinking’ and ‘test innovative ideas’ involving partnership approaches to: Education & awareness raising (incl. youth education work) Youth work – outreach & diversionary activities Youth work – targeted work for those already with alcohol misuse issues Targeting hardened drinkers / street drinkers Police led operations Responsible retailing of alcohol Night-time economy Better use of data / info-sharing end-of-project-summary
